Content details


This is a design for a jazz festival in Hawaii. Please provide two versions one that includes the year 2010 and one without the year. There are two themes that we would like incorporated for the logo: #1) Focus on Hawaii: Surfboards, palm trees, beaches, etc. #2) Focus on Jazz: Saxophone, Music notes, Treble Clef, Bass Clef, etc. The ideal logo will find a way to mesh these two themes together. The logo could have either a somewhat bright/summer feeling or, since it's Jazz, it could be dark and moody. Feel free to submit designs using either of these feels. We want this to be a classy event. The design should be recognizable, should not be too cartoonish, should not involve stock photography of any kind, and should be rather stylish. The text should also be easy to read. Please no grunge designs. We will be making tshirts/polo shirts based off of this design, so please keep that in mind and do not provide us with any overly complicated logos. Below are a few sites that we have attached that might help provide you with some ideas/inspiration as to what we are looking for: http://www.montereyjazzfestival.org http://festival.sundance.org/2010 http://www.sfjazz.org/concerts/2007…/index.asp http://www.jazzfestival55.com/ http://www.montreuxjazz.com
